    Kevin, Smith Lake is a hard lake to catfish. As far as locks and dam fishing
    Smith Lake tailwaters is cold as ice, the state stocks rainbow trout in
    these waters and I know catfishing would not be good below the dam.
    You need to get a state map. Their are several good lakes and rivers
    within an hours drive from your house. Black Warrior River -- Bankhead
    Lake and Holt Lake are good lakes and have good tailrace fishing to.
    Coosa River--- Lake Neeley Herny, Logan Martin, Lay, and Jordan lakes
    are great fishing and below the dams good tailrace fishing. An hour and
    a half north is lake Guntersville and Gunterville Dam on the Tennessee
    River. You in ALABAMA now don't you be pro-mouthing that you ain't
    got no place to fish. I have been told that 1/5 of the fresh water in the
    world flows through ALABAMA. In your spare time learn how to say

    Very nice looking home! Congrats

    I am not too familar with Alabama so i can offer no real advice. I would guess that any good sized creek or river is going to hold some decent catfish. Just go to the closest one, find a good spot and fish. If there are other people present, I am sure they will help you out with some of the other locations! Good luck to you brother!
